In person dining just got shut down two counties away. I presume my county will follow shortly.

 

Yes I would have thought so .

 

Our big thing here and I presume for you all is the pubs and bars and of course Christmas .....there are hints that we will have a 5 day relaxtion of rules to allow 3 or 4 household to get together ....seems a quarter of the country want that , a quarter are intending on doing it regardless , a quarter are screaming noooooooooo don't do it , not when we are on the verge of the oxford vaccine , and the remaining quarter just don't know what the hell is going on .

 

As for bars and pubs , well my emily works in a bar ...do I want her stood there on Christmas eve in the middle of all that ...no of course not , but these independent pubs are going under too so I feel sorry for them , I hate to say it though , but it is safer without alcohol !!! Easy for me to say I know , I don't drink ...but alcohol and pandemics do not mix .

 

Anyway I will update later tonight .

I fell asleep during the covid special lol ...

 

But , the bit I heard seems to cover it .....we are coming out of lockdown on 2nd December and going back to our cities been on a tiered system and that determines if bars can open as takeaways or have punters actually in .

 

No one knows yet what tier we are all on in our cities .

 

We can meet in groups of 6 I believe ...oh it is all a mish mash if you want the truth .

Not good where I am. We have been placed under more restrictions, hospitals are full at this time, very few ICU beds. Funny you don't hear the media talking too much about it but that's what is going on and I only know that as someone "on the inside".

 

I have been exposed at work due to an employee that tested positive. I didn't find out until after a week. Yes, that's right, our tests don't come back until 5+ days now. Functionally useless. One of my patients got very sick, we aren't sure if she had it. Her test will be delayed as well, already talked to the lab. It's no use.

 

The cases just keep going up. This vaccine can't come quickly enough. I don't feel that I can go to the grocery store at this time either. I may spend Christmas alone and I'm dreading it.

oh Fudgie ... As I said the Oxford vaccine is about ready to come out and is available to the world not just the UK ..don't know if you get that on your news . Lets face it , do we ever get the full news !! Hang on in there .

I have heard, yes, but I have so much doubt re: distribution capabilities. I am a healthcare worker in a high risk area so I, in theory, will get jabbed first. But I just don't know.

 

I fear getting sick or spreading it to my patients before a vaccine.

They have given us bit more information about distribution for us , they do not expect all the GP surgeries to deal with alone and the last I heard people are going to be trained specifically to get this banged out . I don't know the pecking order yet , but obviously front line workers like you and the vulnerable need it .

 

I will be glad to see us all one by one come on and say we are vaccinated .

How does this make sense ..we come out of lockdown on the 2nd and 4000 sports fans will be allowed to gather for events in low risk areas !! Thousands upon thousands are still getting positive results every day ... we are a tiny Island , why lock us down to open us up to that .... I will never understand some of these decisions .

Second time this has happened, same store, same age person (middle aged lady). Last week - middle aged lady peering into the frozen pizza case -basically meditating. Higher end market. I needed to get my kids pizza. But -her mask is pulled down below her nose and I've seen her there before. So I said "look, I know what I want and I can't get there because you're not wearing your mask - can you please move aside and I'll get it quickly?" She did "oh! I forgot to pull my mask up!" (ok)

 

This week same store, now the canned fish aisle. Meditating middle aged lady(she just cannot manage to select which canned salmon she wants), mask pulled down -not the same lady but looked similar. Now, not only can I not get my cart in the aisle there's now a woman behind me waiting -so I say to her "she doesn't have her mask on - so I am waiting but if you want please go ahead of me" - she doesn't - so I say to the maskless lady - "excuse me I need to get my item, and you're not wearing a mask so I can't get there" -she scurries away, holdng a multipack of fish she already had in hand and puled up her mask.

 

So -no - it's not some disability or medical condition - just laziness. (and in both cases their naked noses were inches from the food).

It is just ridiculous ...not that I would want anyone to be alone ...but ..............

 

I bubble to myself. lol... I know what you mean though.

I even order everything to my door(started to this week- I know not everyone has this option). Sad the way things are but it won't be forever. Stay cheery... as best you can, Pippy. You're a ray of light.

I have a family member now in ICU in a coma due to Covid and other family members who are waiting for tests results.

 

I wished people would take this more seriously on how bad it's becoming.

 

My friend watched her mother die a few weeks ago, again due to Covid. It's becoming alarming.

Thank you, reinvent.

 

This come right after one of our main hospitals shut down due to Covid running rampant through it like wildfire.

But it's now shut down as they keep finding more and more Covid cases in all areas of the hospitals.

 

In my city in particular, it's getting to be quite bad. Months back, it was only strangers we heard of that had Covid, now it's coming closer and closer and it's now neighbors, family members, friends etc.

 

This year is quite bad and I am literally cringing over how much worse it will get over Christmas. My stress levels are not good. I don't want to lose a family member but things aren't great.

It is not good enough is it !!!!

 

Did I ever tell the story on here about me getting threatened ..sorry if this is a repeat performance .

 

This was just before the last lock down in March ...we were all kinda using scarves over our faces and and told to stand two metres apart . I was in a queue and was next . This man came and cut the queue and stood a foot infront of me ...I could understand how he didn't realise with all the big gaps that we were in a queue . I was more bothered how close he was to me ..so I said , hey there is a queue and you shouldn't be stood that close to me or anyone ...he muttered something then walked passed me , almost brushing his arm next to mine .....so I said hey don't get so close ( I was at breaking point in my head I was sooooo scared )

 

With that the girl infront who was getting served turned and shouted * are you for f*****G real ...I thought she was talking to him for being an idiot and sort of spun my head around and she said , * no you , you f** idiot , I am going to come over there and f you up more then you could ever imagine getting f'd up in your life !!!!! On and on she went .... she got escorted out by the security and I was just stood open mouthed ( with my scarf over it ) in disbelief ....so that's what you get when you stand up for yourself re covid !! She was half my age as well ...she probably would have floored me lol

 

OMG!!!! I'm so sorry that happened. I'm actually very careful about what I say and how I say it. How awful.

    • 5 Things People Who’ve Been Mentally Abused Do
      Do you know how common mental abuse is? According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, 80 percent of the population has experienced some form of abusive relationship and behavior. However, despite how frequent it is, emotional abuse is still hard to spot. Unlike physical abuse, mental abuse doesn’t leave any visible scars; instead, it affects someone’s behavior, mindset, and mentality. This means some people deny they’ve been mentally abused, and others may not even recognize the toxic behavior. So, whether you’re reading this to be able to recognize emotional abuse in others or recognize it in yourself, these a few things people who’ve been mentally abused do are sure to help you be more empathetic and kinder.

    • 5 Polarity Secrets to Attracting Love that Makes you Magnetic AF
      In this video, I'm going to show you the 5 most powerful ways to create polarity in order to attract love. Think of it like a magnet. If you have a magnet, it is going to attract, but also repel based on its polarity. If you have a positive and a positive and you put them together, guess what's gonna happen? They're going to repel each other. Same with a negative and negative. But when you have a positive and a negative, they clink right like this. The key to attracting love is embodying your own sense of polarity, which really is the authenticity of who you really are, letting go of what you are not so that you can attract love easier than ever. These are things that completely transformed my own life.
